“By turning off the lights at night, we provide an avenue for the safe passage of our night migrants, the birds and the bats that need the darkness to find their way home.” Fred Charbonneau

Detroit Audubon’s Project Safe Passage Great Lakes project works to reduce the incidence of collisions of night-migrating birds with illuminated buildings in this area. The number of birds killed in these nighttime collisions runs into the millions. We contact managers of buildings five stories or higher to advise them of the economic and environmental benefits of turning lighting off on their top floors during migration seasons.
